Search area of missing jet moves 700 miles
March 29 , 2014
Search planes for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are now concentrating on a smaller area of the Indian Ocean. Reports suggest that the area has been shifted about 700 miles and it appears that the aircraft may have flown faster than previously believed.
The new area is closer to Australia and an oceanographer mentioned that it's in a different ballpark altogether.
"Where they are searching now is more like a subtropical ocean," he said. "It is not nearly as bad as the southern Indian Ocean, which should make the search easier."
